IECC Board of Trustees Meeting – 08-15-2017

      The Board of Trustees of Illinois Eastern Community Colleges approved a tentative budget for the 2018 Fiscal Year, Tuesday, August 15, at the regular meeting, held at Wabash Valley College.

            A public hearing on the budget will be held at the regular meeting, Tuesday, September 19, at Frontier Community Valley College.  The final budget will be adopted following the public hearing.  The budget has been available to the public at the IECC District Office since August 9th.

            The IECC tentative budget represents the current and best judgement of the district administration relative to anticipated revenues for fiscal year 2018.  It was based on information available at the time of publication.  If new information becomes available, those changes will be made to the final budget on September 19.

            An existing agreement between Richland County TB and Health Office and IECC was approved for use of OCC facilities during emergencies or disasters.  The agreement has been in place since 2011 and was due for review and approval.

            Trustees approved a Water Retention Plan and Construction Easement on IECC property which is located adjacent to the Seals Property in Olney.

            Trustees approved revisions to the LTC Student Handbooks for the Electronic Medical Records Program, Pharmacy Technician Program, and the Certified Medical Assistant Program.  The revisions were made to change language that states specific expenses to language that would make a general statement about fees instead of listing each individual fee.  These changes will allow LTC to provide students with the most up to date fee information.

An existing athletic training services contract for OCC was approved for renewal with Carle Richland Memorial Hospital for an additional one-year period to cover athletic training services for the college for the academic year 2017-2018.
